Karim Mella returns to the top of the Everest

Dominican mountain climber, Karim Mella has done it again. For a second time he reached the top of Mount Everest in Nepal. He reached the summit at 7pm on Sunday, 21 May 2017, Dominican time.

On 20 May 2011, he had become the first Dominican to climb the mountain. The only other Dominican to reach the summit was Iván Gómez. On that same 2011 trip, Federico Jovine almost made it, but cut his trip short due to problems with his oxygen mask. Jovine would go on to document the trip in a book on the adventure.
